Meet Dr. Alexis Gopal: Creative Entrepreneur, Mother, Designer and Amazing Friend

It is no mistake that Alexis Gopal is our first featured artisan. She has been an amazing support to me and SariBlue. Her willingness to share her infinite knowledge about her business and life experience is invaluable.

Alexis opened her business in 2006, with a huge career change. She was a physician in private practice, working hard and missing out on time with her girls. She made a life-changing decision to leave her practice and start something totally new which allows time with her family and focus on what really matters to her. Alexis had been designing and creative since she was a child, painting, crocheting, and making jewelry. The inspiration for her designs: her daughters and nature.

Her generosity is amazing. Of course she is also a wonderful jewelry designer with an interesting life story. This chapter of her story is filled with great success and we wish her well on her continued journey. [Read more…]
